sending encrypted email on Mac mail version 5.1
First off, I am a total newbie with this whole sending encrypted email thing and I can't seem to figure it out. I open Mac Mail 5.1 and I open a new email. I want to send an email to a friend and I already have his public key in my keyring on GPG keychain access. Do I just type in the friends email address, make sure the lock button is locked, and then send? Or do I have to attach my exported public key? How will they be able to decrypt my original email? When I highlight and right click on the text of the email, I select "open pgp:encrypt". It then shows a dialogue box that asks for the recipients. I choose the public key of my friend under use and then hit OK. Then I get the "DUH" noise from the Mac that means I did something wrong.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
